babel-plugin-transform-react-class-to-function

A Babel 7 plugin which transforms React component classes into functions

npm version build status codecov

Writing React components using the class syntax has several benefits:

  • Consistency — Define all components using similar syntax.
  • Static properties — Components are more self contained when using static class properties.
  • Simpler diffs — No need to change the entire indentation converting between classes and functions.

There is one obvious downside:

  • Size — Class components are larger than function components.

This plugin solves that for you. 😃

Example

In

import PropTypes from 'prop-types';
import React from 'react';
 
 
export default class HelloWorld extends React.Component {
  static propTypes = {
    className: PropTypes.string,
  }
 
  render() {
    const {
      className,
    } = this.props;
 
    return (
      <div className={className}>
        Hello world!
      </div>
    )
  }
}

Out

import PropTypes from 'prop-types';
import React from 'react';
 
 
const HelloWorld = ({
  className,
}) => {
  return (
    <div className={className}>
      Hello world!
    </div>
  )
};
 
 
HelloWorld.propTypes = {
  className: PropTypes.string,
};
 
 
export default HelloWorld;

Special Thanks

This plugin was originally based on babel-plugin-transform-react-pure-class-to-function. However, the project has diverged a lot. You may want to give that project a try if you need to use babel 6.

install

npm i babel-plugin-transform-react-class-to-function
